A trusted advisor recommended that I retain Significa. Within three months of working with Kathy, I went from being merely one of many possibilities to being the top candidate…..and I ultimately became CEO. Not only did Kathy help me better understand what boards want and how to position myself; she also helped me be a better leader and CEO. I highly recommend Significa if you aspire to senior level roles.
